Hello, I am here to warn you that Dareq is a scam.

Monday I tried to buy 28 BTS to Dareq (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=65097.0) via Paypal for $134 (I paid by card). He said he would send the bit coins 12 hours later, so that he could do some verifications and stuff.

Tuesday, I checked my BTC account and didn't have any btw from him. I asked him what was up, and he told me that paypal had blocked the payment. He says he doesn't know why, probably because his account is not a verified account.

On MSN he told me that I could get chargeback. I'm not used to paypal, so I figured out I had to start a dispute. I turned the dispute into a complaint, in which I said exactly this : "I didn't receive the product. Seller told me the payment was blocked by paypal and that I had to start a dispute to "chargeback". Thats what I'm doing. I didn't receive the product."

Now, paypal is waiting for his Dareq's answer. He has to reply before march 16th.

Wednesday, my bank account got charged of $134. I though the payment was blocked ??


Of course, he blocked me on MSN and won't reply to my PM.

I'm sorry, that sucks. But why would you use someone who refuses to use escrow services, and refuses to trade with trusted people?

Have your bank reverse the payment to PayPal. (PayPal will ban you forever if you do this, though.)

Sorry to hear this happened to you, but wasn't all of the previous threads he started enough warning for you?

There were plenty of people who picked apart his business plan and pointed out many flaws he couldn't explain away. The whole thing looked extremely suspicious from the start. Not to mention he was selling also a graphics card using someone else photos and description.

Hopefully PayPal had time to freeze the money in Dareq's PayPal account. If they did it will be refunded to your bank account after the dispute ends, if not, your SOL.



Actually I don't know if the money has been frozen in his account. He told me his account was blocked but that's probably another lie ..
I started the dispute like 24hours after the payment.

Well, he did took it into consideration, because he PM'd me when he started suspecting dareq would ot send him the bitcoins.
He decided to risk it and he lost. It sucks, but I bet he knows he has nobody else to blame but himself.
You should thank him because he's telling everyone he got fooled and that dareq is a scammer.
Probably will avoid someone else of getting scammed.

@OP: You're going to hear this a lot in this thread but-- Paypal is a scam and you fell for it. Never use Paypal for Bitcoins.

You can use Paypal for Bitcoins. I've bought some here and I'm in the process of buying some more right now.
But I will not get my name dirty for $100, hell, not even for $1000. I'm already dirty enough without being a scammer Tongue

Just a tip, If he does contact you and tries to tell you to cancel/mark resolved your dispute/complaint so he can refund the money, DON'T! This will prevent you from opening a new dispute. He can refund your money through the dispute portal.  Wink

Can't ban/censor people just because they might be a scammer.

I had to file a dispute once (non bitcoin related), once it ended I got my money back, took like a month though.

My paypal account has been frozen and that's why I have asked OP to chargeback his money. He can easily do it via normal dispute or just via bank dispute, it doesn't really matter. I have already apologized him, and didnt ask him to send it as gift or to close dispute or something like that.
